Geoffrey’s improv partner LJ, who is also the host of Bike Talk on MIT’s radio station, joins us to talk about an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night that takes place in a competitive sports context. No, it’s not She’s the Man! It’s a different one! Motocrossed was a direct to TV movie from the turn of the century, and though neither Geoffrey nor Julia had heard of it before, it played a big role in LJ’s growing up years.

Lots of questions arise as we talk about this one, but perhaps most importantly, how did motocross community members get and share news in 2001? Email? Web? Paper newsletter? If you are a motocross historian and archivist, please contact Geoffrey!

We also have some different twin film digressions, and we learn that given the NSYNC vs. Backstreet Boys fandom choice, LJ is NSYNC all the way.
